When the people threw stones and shot arrows at Samuel, they couldn't hit him. Why?


Because the Spirit of the Lord was with him

But as many as there were who did not believe in the words of Samuel were angry with him; and they cast stones at him upon the wall, and also many shot arrows at him as he stood upon the wall; but the Spirit of the Lord was with him, insomuch that they could not hit him with their stones neither with their arrows. Helaman 16:2
